к вопросу о небытии

Пару лет назад фотограф Леви Беттвизер пробрел в антикварном магазине старый фотоаппарат и обнаружил, что в нем осталась непроявленная пленка. Оказывается, это - довольно частое явление. Беттвизер стал собирать эти пленки и проявлять их. Так возник The Rescued Film Project.


Every image in The Rescued Film Project at some point, was special for someone.  Each frame captured, reflects a moment that was intended to be remembered.  The picture was taken, the roll was finished, wound up, and for reasons we can only speculate, was never developed.  These moments never made it into photo albums, or framed neatly on walls.  We believe that these images deserve to be seen, so that the photographer's personal experiences can be shared.  Forever marking their existence in history.
